It’s the time of the year when seasoned ski connoisseurs are counting down the days to their next sojourn on the slopes.

And while most will already have their 2016 alpine packages booked, those looking for some last-minute snow action with the added spice of a music festival could do worse than check out Snowboxx.

Snowboxx is the ultimate winter festival – consisting of one week of huge main stage shows, the après craic in the Alps and stages in some of the most unique locations in the world from March 12 until March 19.

Add all of this to a ski holiday in one of the best resorts in Europe, Avoriaz, and you’ve got yourself a festival of a lifetime.

After selling out for the past three years, Snowboxx has taken things to a new level for 2016, introducing a unique festival village, secret mountain parties, tropical pool parties and huge park competitions with BBQs in the snow.

The current line-up includes chart-smashing Sigma, incredible duo Blonde, double Mobo-award-winning Stormzy, hip-hop legend Grandmaster Flash and a host more.

As well as the music acts there are also onesie days, snowball fights, karaoke cabins, igloo raves, and stash park parties with more than 650km of piste to explore.

With packages still available from e460 including flights, transfers, accommodation, lift pass and festival ticket, there is no wonder why this is one of the most in demand events in the apes.
